The Confederate flag has now been taken down from the capital grounds in Columbia, South Carolina. Heck, for good measure they even took down the flagpole. That will show that dumb old flag.
And how everyone cheered the symbolism – because that’s what we do these days. It doesn’t matter that the flag did not kill those nine poor souls in Charleston, how long the flag has been flying or who put it up there in the first place and why. Americans celebrate the symbolism and congratulate each other for our newly discovered progressive enlightenment. Hooray for us!!
That famous American Piers Morgan (not an American) weighed in saying that “Doing the right thing is to be applauded, however long it takes.”
Regarding why the flag flew for so long Piers added: “And we all, surely, thought the same thing: why is this flag still a protected species when all it does is remind people of America’s darkest, most evil past and motivate racists like Roof.”
Yes Piers – that’s what we’ve all been thinking for the past 54 years, as people strolled by the flag, walked by a monument or drove on a street or highway bearing the name of a prominent Confederate. Yes – we’ve all been suffering in silence. Even democrats and leftists (I guess that’s redundant) – because they’re known for their quiet demeanor.
